Site Description


The remains of a ring motte are now incorporated into a private garden at the rear of Camp House. Some of the scarps shown on the last published on the last Ordnance Survey map plan have now gone - the remaining ditch on the S and the nearby scarp of the ring bank. Otherwise as described below. It survives as an oval enclosure measuring about 14m-16m in diameter and was formerly ditched.
